Next wednesday, Poolkino at Neubad will screen a selection of local short films – among them also FOGLÄ! I will be there, too and answer questions after the screening. I’m looking forward to see you!
Past wednesday we held the premiere of our graduation films in Emmenbrücke – among them also FOGLÄ. It was a great night with great films that perfectly rounded off a great year. Now it’s time to let FOGLÄ loose on the world!
After more than a year’s work, FOGLÄ is now finally ready for the big wide world. Only one session of mixing and then I am finally done. I am very happy. FOGLÄ is a cynical satire. The short revolves around three birds who are dealt a bad hand by life. It’s about sex, recognition and … Continue reading On the home straight
For a few days now I am finished with the animation for FOGLÄ – the picture is done. I even installed a facebook page for you to like. All that is missing now is the sound track – one of the people in charge for that is my great friend Jan Willem de With who … Continue reading The Sound of Music
While I am pursuing the cleaning and colouring, I have to make sure that the sound track is coming along nicely. After all, I not only want Foglä to look great, but also to sound great.

That means, by the end of production I will have drawn a bit more than 2000 images. The effort … Continue reading Animation half time
In two weeks I want to kick off animation for FOGLÄ. Until then I have to settle certain questions – for instance, how the bird people in my film move. It is important to me that they don’t simply move like real birds, but more like clumsy, flying people. Since there is no reference material … Continue reading How do bird people fly?
A first milestone in the production of my film: We’ve got the voices for FOGLÄ done! Yay! Ursula, Keni and Gaspard, the main characters of my graduation film will be voiced by Naomi Homenu, Andrea Giovanni Sidoti and myself. Now all that’s left to do, is to pick the right recordings, time them properly and … Continue reading Recording Foglä
The production for my short FOGLÄ is finally on track! My animated short will tell of the woes of three birds who are on a quest for sex and salvation. I will direct the film myself, which leaves me with plenty of creative liberties. I am almosed done with the animatic – the animated storyboard … Continue reading Production kicks off
